BRIDGEPORT, Connecticut — Metro-North Railroad says a water leak from a burst frozen sprinkler line entered a power substation at Grand Central Terminal, causing delays into and out of New York City.
Hearst Connecticut Media reports (http://bit.ly/1w09fna ) the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said Wednesday that shortly after 4:30 p.m. Tuesday an overhead water leak triggered the substation's automatic safety mechanism to shut.
The shutdown cut the power supply to numerous tracks, causing delays of up to 40 minutes.
Crews manually reconfigured the power supply.
The source of the water leak was traced to a frozen sprinkler line that burst in the Waldorf-Astoria's garage.
